    Default Screenprinting on felt

    I want to print something on felt. Not the super flat kind but not the shag either. Lets say ... 1/16 - 1/8 inch or so teddy bear fur. Can this be done? Suggestions?

    Just wanted to check before i got too far into this thing im doing. I figured a low mesh would work since the arts not all that complicated.

    I do this quite a bit and I've found starched and pressed felt yields a better image. I print all over full bleed panels at 30"x40" with 230 mesh and a thick UV black. Your first print on felt will be your best. After that it gets harder and harder to print clean images as the felt get stuck in the screen and the "creep" under pressure offsets on the back of your screen. Be prepared to print a lot of cleaning sheets.

    I just found this felt contact today...
